Andrew Adonis a senior Labour party figure who is opposed to Brexit and all the harm it will create, indeed the harm it is already creating across the UK, is speaking tomorrow 23rd Feb’ at Ormskirk Civic Hall at 2pm.
Here’s a link which gives more information:-
Yes he tends towards tribal Labour in my opinion which makes it all the more fascinating that he is openly taking his own party leadership to task because they are still backing/enabling the Tories job loss Brexit.
Sadly, I can’t get along to the meeting as I’m otherwise engaged but please consider going if you, like me, think that Brexit is an utter disaster for the UK.
Labour voters stack up like this over Brexit:-
And just look how badly Jez Corbyn is doing in terms of the most recent approval rating:-
Just 17% Approve of him – 72% Disapprove – That’s a score of minus 55!
The two have to be linked, don’t you think? Yes, we all understand that Corbyn is a life-long anti-EU person because he thinks it’s some kind of capitalist conspiracy yet by enabling Brexit he is actually helping the far-right to get their way and trash our economy, living standards, employment rights and much else.
The big question is why are Labour members & supporters letting their leadership get away with doing the exact opposite of what they believe to be right?
I understand that loyalty to The Party is everything in the Labour Party and that it goes back all the way to the trade unionists who founded it but Brexit is putting at great risk many of the advances that the trade union movement has fought for and won! Sitting back and letting the present Labour leadership have its way is akin to Labour members and supporters voting for UKIP and far-right Tories for goodness sake.
What’s the point of being loyal to The Party if all you are doing is helping the far-right?
As a life-long trade unionist and someone who considers themselves to be well to left on the spectrum of UK politics I despair, I really do.
